releasing early

, Austria instrument Guitar Fennesz had ties with the Vienna-based label Mego (Mego Records), and is now signed to Touch (Touch Records) in the UK. The more abstract Autechre and Aphex Twin around this time were releasing early records in the "intelligent techno" or so-called intelligent dance music (IDM) style, while other Bristol-based musicians such as Tricky, Leftfield, Massive Attack and Portishead (Portishead (band)) were experimenting with the fusion of electronic textures with hip-hop (Hip hop music), R&B (rhythm and blues) rhythms to form what became known as trip-hop. Later extensions to the trip-hop aesthetic around 1997 came from the highly influential Vienna-based duo of Kruder & Dorfmeister, whose blunted, dubbed-out, slowed beats became the blueprint for the new style of downtempo. '''Baden''' is a spa town in the Austrian state of Lower Austria and the capital of the Baden district (Baden (district of Austria)). Located about 26 kilometres south of Vienna, frequently the name is given as ''Baden bei Wien'' (Baden near Vienna); this name, however, is not official, but can be used to distinguish it from other cities of the same name such as Baden-Baden or Baden, Switzerland.

However, they were not well received, and that - combined with the financial insecurity of a career as a composer - led him to concentrate on conducting. At his first concert, he led the Kaim Orchestra (now the Munich Philharmonic) in Anton Bruckner's Ninth Symphony (Symphony No. 9 (Bruckner)). He subsequently held posts at Munich, Strasbourg, Lübeck, Mannheim, Frankfurt (Frankfurt am Main), and Vienna, before securing a job at the Berlin Staatskapelle in 1920, and in 1922 at the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra where he succeeded Arthur Nikisch, and concurrently at the prestigious Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Albert Speer claimed that in December 1944 Furtwängler asked whether Germany had any chance of winning the war. Speer replied in the negative, and advised the conductor to flee to Switzerland from possible Nazi retribution. Albert Speer, ''Inside the Third Reich'' (1970) Macmillan pp 548. Furtwängler did in fact escape to Switzerland shortly after a concert in Vienna with the Vienna Philharmonic on January 28, 1945. At that concert he conducted an account of Brahms's Second Symphony (Symphony No. 2 (Brahms)) that was caught on tape and is considered one of his greatest recordings.
